The fourth Dallas Super Session, a loose get together of magicians from around the country, was held on Saturday, March 18. About 28 magicians met at the Wynam Hotel in Dallas for some friendly sessioning and a chance to perform for their peers. No registration, no officers, just a $20 donation to cover the room costs.
The attendees this year were, in order of performance:
Eric DeCamps - Brass Ball and Vase( I want one of these) with candle production, Grandma's necklace, and the best cubio in the word ( I want this one too) using a bocci ball with a hole drilled through it.
George Ferrin - One of the Monday Night Gang, george performed is own The Death Ot The King card trick
Bobby Plaut - Ten Card Poker variation with a surprise ending
John Kline - Hartling's Chaos
Jared Kopf - Two card location with aces
Norman Beck (new Genii columnist) - A bill routine and a poem with a happy ending.
Jordan Burgess - Lie detector card trick
James Robinson - A beautiful apparatus trick called True Love
Mike Squires - No More Nightmares (Mike needs to market this so I can use it)

After a short break, Roger Klause, Bob White and Jared Kopf held a mini teach-in as a bonus.
After dinner we all gathered to view some video clips of Charlie Miller doing his standup material. Rice Bowls routine is very funny.
Sunday morning there was a Vernon video presentation, that included some clips from Canadian TV, that was inspiring.
Early arivals visited on Friday night, and late leavers on Monday morning. All decided to do it again next year.
